All it took was some frustration, despair and a desire to grow. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of people who find themselves stuck at a desk and making just enough to survive, and realize after so many years that they actually feel empty. I am determined to make sure I love what I do and do what I love, a luxury a lot of people don’t have.
Sure, the fact that I have a ‘safety net’ and a good support system makes it possible for me to dream different and take risks. Truth is, I don’t know how the story will unfold, I don’t have a plan beyond today, but I wake up each day excited at the possibilities of now, learning new things and growing in the right direction.
When people ask me ‘What do you want to be when you get older?’ I don’t think of money or career, like most people do. I honestly just want to be happy, that’s the most important thing. The type of happiness that is bubbling in every cell of my molecular build up, happiness so intertwined in the fibre of my very existence. Happiness that radiates and pours onto anyone I have contact with. Happiness so wealthy, joy so everlasting, and peace so warming that it can’t be taken away from me.
So yeah, this is a part of my escape plan, a journey, you can say, to happiness.
Do you know where you’re trying to escape to?
